Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)

Rhinoplasty sometimes referred to as a “nose job” or “nose reshaping” enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose, and also can correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.

Because the nose is a very important central feature of the face nasal characteristics affect the overall balance and aesthetic appeal of the entire face, we always recommend that this procedure should be done by a professional that has under gone extensive training in facial analysis.

This surgery can greatly improve a person’s appearance by correcting a wide or crooked nose, removing unwanted bumps and refining the nose shape

Rhinoplasty is one of the most exacting procedures in plastic surgery because very small changes can significantly alter the appearance. Careful evaluation, planning, and surgical precision are critically important. Overly operated noses appear unattractive and unnatural.

In general, features of the nose should blend in a pleasing fashion with other facial structures. Overly prominent regions of the nose such as a large hump or an excessively round or bulbous tip, detract from a pleasing balance, and can be improved by rhinoplasty, like nose size in relation to facial balance, nose width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils, nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge, nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked, nostrils that are large, wide or upturned, nasal asymmetry

Nose surgery that’s done to improve an obstructed airway requires careful evaluation of the nasal structure as it relates to airflow and breathing.
Correction of a deviated septum, one of the most common causes of breathing impairment, is achieved by adjusting the nasal structure to produce better alignment.

This procedure is done at our outpatient facility with local anesthesia and IV sedation, performed by our certified anesthesiologist

We usually leave a splint and/or packing inside your nose and a splint or bandages placed on the outside to support and protect the new structures during initial healing, we remove the inside nose packing 24 hrs after the surgery, the external splint is removed in 2 weeks.

While initial swelling subsides within a few weeks, it may take up to a year for your new nasal contour to fully refine. During this time you may notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it refines to a more permanent outcome.
